The CS for Health Mutahi Kagwe has noted that the number of infected persons stagnates at seven as at today. Speaking at Afya House Nairobi today, Kagwe noted that they have managed to screen a total of 600,000 people across the country. He also said that they are in constant look out to 145 people who were in contact with the seven people.
The CS has said that the government will start mass screening of people this coming Saturday.
The government is keen on ensuring that citizens remain in safety wherever they are. The spokesman Colonel Oguna said that those who are panicking and travelling home should stay wherever they are. He said that the government has not asked anyone to leave anywhere.
Kagwe also said that about 20 people who were quarantined and were waiting for results had been tested and came out negative, they have therefore been discharged to go home.
The CS has also taken a swipe at DJ Joe Mfalme who was about to defy order of not crowding by holding a show in a club this coming weekend. He said that any person who fails to observe the practice will be arrested and charged.
He also warned the public not to take the law in their own hands rather use the communication lines provided to relay information to health authorities.
The CS noted that billionaire Jack Ma has donated about 20,000 testing kits and several masks to Kenya.
The government Spokesman talked down Moses Wetangula who had urged the government to make public details of the 6 Kenyans and a Burundian who had contracted the virus.
